Arminius (Armin) defeated a Roman army in the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest in 9 C.E. Arminius is highly regarded for his military leadership skills and as a defender of the liberty of his people, the Germanic tribes.

The last battle of the Roman Empire was in 451AD between an alliance of Rome (which was failing) and the Visigoths in France (Gaul) against Attila the Hun and the Huns. The Romans won a strategic and decisive victory, and later the Huns were wiped out by the Teuton tribes after losing this battle. Although it was a major victory it did not stop Rome from collapsing and finally being sacked in 476. Rome staggered on for some time afterwards but it was never the same or powerful again.
